What is The Great Escape

The Great Escape is both a spiritual and fun retreat for international students and scholars from all religious backgrounds. It is an opportunity to escape the pressures of academic life for a brief period and retreat to a quiet place for some spiritual refreshment and to discover together what the Bible has to say about who we are and how we can live a meaningful and purposeful life. There will be music, teaching from the Bible, and spiritual discussions. There will also be lots of time for fun activities like sightseeing, zip lining, hiking, White water rafting, talent show, games and friendship building. This is a college and young adult focused retreat.
